Life is better at Mitchell!

Everyone approaches the world differently…that’s something we embrace at Mitchell College. That’s why transfer students are so welcome here. Wherever you are in your college career, Mitchell will work with you individually to help you reach your educational goals, and financially to help you afford the unique education Mitchell provides its students.

What’s so different about Mitchell College?

Having already attended college, you will appreciate the distinctive experience at Mitchell where…

  • Your potential is nurtured and your strengths are explored
  • Faculty and staff know you well and teach to your learning style
  • An advisor stays with you from orientation to graduation
  • Career experiences begin the first semester you spend on campus and progress in a sequence that gets you ready to excel professionally
  • A friendly community welcomes you into the whole college experience, something you may not have really had the chance to engage in before
  • You are encouraged to try new things, take risks, and test your leadership abilities
  • Expertise in academic support — from professional tutors to trained learning specialists — means you will be your best

Getting Credit

Everything we do at Mitchell combines to help you maximize your personal success. An advisor helps you to structure a program that makes the most of the credits you’ve earned—and if requested, we will even give you a credit evaluation before you apply!

No matter where you are when you come in, Mitchell will set you on an academic and career path that meets your goals.

Doing College Right

College isn’t just what you learn in the classroom. The whole campus is a place to discover what you love and where you excel. In a small college, you will find you have more opportunities to try out new things or take on leadership roles because people know you and look for ways to get you involved. You will build relationships across campus, from your peers to the president, while you explore an interest or tackle a special project with encouragement and support.

Making Career Connections

Mitchell’s Integrative Career Development program connects you with our professional partners in the community through mentors, job shadows, behind-the-scenes tours, projects and internships. As a transfer student, you can jump into the progressive career sequence in the place that is right for you. The program develops practical skills and offers real-world experiences while you grow your network of professional contacts.

A few words on fit.


"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.


If you are looking for a college that: 


  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities




…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
